generation of lift, the Kutta-condition, the effect of the camber distribution

on the coefficients of lift and moment, and the location of the center of

pressure and the aerodynamic center, it has several limitations that prevent

it from being used in practical applications. Among these we can mention:

airfoil theory, and, therefore, the prediction accuracy degrades in these

situations even away from stagnation points.

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

Alternatives

We could consider the following alternatives in order to overcome the

limitations of thin airfoil theory

Laplace’s equation that can enhance the accuracy of the approximation

(doublet, quadrupoles, octupoles, etc.). This approach falls under the

denomination of multipole expansions.

vortices) but place them on the surface of the body of interest, and use

the exact flow tangency boundary conditions without the approximations

used in thin airfoil theory.

flows (unlike streamfunction or complex variable methods).

panels, the integral equations are transformed into an easily solvable set of

simultaneous linear equations.

PANEL METHODS

4

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

(singularity solutions, variation within a panel, singularity strength and

distribution, etc.) The simplest and first truly practical method was due to

Hess and Smith, Douglas Aircraft, 1966. It is based on a distribution of

sources and vortices on the surface of the geometry. In their method

φ = φ∞ + φS + φV (1)

where, φ is the total potential function and its three components are the

potentials corresponding to the free stream, the source distribution, and

the vortex distribution. These last two distributions have potentially locally

varying strengths q(s) and γ(s), where s is an arc-length coordinate which

spans the complete surface of the airfoil in any way you want.

the complete surface of the airfoil. Using the superposition principle, any

such distribution of sources/sinks and vortices satisfies Laplace’s equation,

but we will need to find conditions for q(s) and γ(s) such that the flow

tangency boundary condition and the Kutta condition are satisfied.

• Use the source strength distribution to satisfy flow tangency and the

vortex distribution to satisfy the Kutta condition.

both boundary conditions simultaneously.

7

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

Take the vortex strength to be constant over the whole airfoil and use

the Kutta condition to fix its value, while allowing the source strength

to vary from panel to panel so that, together with the constant

vortex distribution, the flow tangency boundary condition is satisfied

everywhere.

Alternatives to this choice are possible and result in different types of panel

methods. Ask if you want to know more about them. Using the panel

decomposition from the figure below,

surface of the airfoil, we must somehow parameterize the variation of source

and vortex strength within each of the panels. Since the vortex strength was

considered to be a constant, we only need worry about the source strength

distribution within each panel.

This is the major approximation of the panel method. However, you

can see how the importance of this approximation should decrease as the

number of panels, N → ∞ (of course this will increase the cost of the

computation considerably, so there are more efficient alternatives.)

Hess and Smith decided to take the simplest possible approximation,

9

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

that is, to take the source strength to be constant on each of the panels

q(s) = qi on panel i, i = 1, . . . , N

panel source strengths qi and the constant vortex strength γ. Consequently,

we will need N + 1 independent equations which can be obtained by

formulating the flow tangency boundary condition at each of the N panels,

and by enforcing the Kutta condition discussed previously. The solution of

the problem will require the inversion of a matrix of size (N + 1) × (N + 1).

The final question that remains is: where should we impose the flow

tangency boundary condition? The following options are available

10

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

• The points on the surface of the actual airfoil, halfway between each

adjacent pair of nodes.

We will see in a moment that the velocities are infinite at the nodes of

our panelization which makes them a poor choice for boundary condition

imposition.

The second option is reasonable, but rather difficult to implement in

practice.

The last option is the one Hess and Smith chose. Although it suffers

from a slight alteration of the surface geometry, it is easy to implement

and yields fairly accurate results for a reasonable number of panels. This

location is also used for the imposition of the Kutta condition (on the

last panels on upper and lower surfaces of the airfoil, assuming that their

11

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

midpoints remain at equal distances from the trailing edge as the number

of panels is increased).

12

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

Implementation

Consider the ith panel to be located between the ith and (i + 1)th

nodes, with its orientation to the x-axis given by

yi+1 − yi

sin θi =

li

xi+1 − xi

cos θi =

li

where li is the length of the panel under consideration. The normal and

tangential vectors to this panel, are then given by

t̂i = cos θiî + sin θiĵ

13

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

while the normal vector, if the airfoil is traversed clockwise, points into the

fluid.

xi + xi+1

and the velocity components at these midpoints are given by

ui = u(x̄i, ȳi)

vi = v(x̄i, ȳi)

where the negative signs are due to the fact that the tangential vectors at

the first and last panels have nearly opposite directions.

superposition of the contributions of all sources and vortices located at the

midpoint of every panel (including itself). Since the velocity induced by the

source or vortex on a panel is proportional to the source or vortex strength

in that panel, qi and γ can be pulled out of the integral in Equation 3 to

yield

16

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

where usij , vsij are the velocity components at the midpoint of panel i

induced by a source of unit strength at the midpoint of panel j. A similar

interpretation can be found for uvij , vvij . In a coordinate system tangential

and normal to the panel, we can perform the integrals in Equation 3 by

noticing that the local velocity components can be expanded into absolute

ones according to the following transformation:

v = u∗ sin θj + v ∗ cos θj

Now, the local velocity components at the midpoint of the ith panel due to

a unit-strength source distribution on this jth panel can be written as

where (x∗, y ∗) are the coordinates of the midpoint of panel i in the local

coordinate system of panel j. Carrying out the integrals in Equation 7 we

rij is the distance from the midpoint of panel i to the jth node, while

βij is the angle subtended by the jth panel at the midpoint of panel i.

Notice that u∗sii = 0, but the value of vsii

is not so clear. When the point

of interest approaches the midpoint of the panel from the outside of the

airfoil, this angle, βii → π. However, when the midpoint of the panel is

approached from the inside of the airfoil, βii → −π. Since we are interested

in the flow outside of the airfoil only, we will always take βii = π.

Similarly, for the velocity field induced by the vortex on panel j at the

midpoint of panel i we can simply see that

20

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

and finally, the flow tangency boundary condition, using Equation 5, and

undoing the local coordinate transformation of Equation 6 can be written

as

where

where the sums k=1,N are carried out only over the first and last panels,

and not the range [1, N ]. These various expressions set up a matrix problem

of the kind

Ax = b

where the matrix A is of size (N + 1) × (N + 1). This system can be

23

AN 1 ... AN i ... AN N AN,N +1 qN bN

AN +1,1 . . . AN +1,i . . . AN +1,N AN +1,N +1 γ bN +1

Notice that the cost of inversion of a full matrix such as this one is

O(N + 1)3, so that, as the number of panels increases without bounds,

the cost of solving the panel problem increases rapidly. This is usually not

a problem for two-dimensional flows, but becomes a serious problem in

three-dimensional flows where the number of panels, instead of being in the

neighborhood of 100, is usually closer to 10, 000. Iterative solution methods

and panel method implementations using fast multipole methods can help

alleviate this problem. More on this later.

24

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

Finally, once you have solved the system for the unknowns of the

problem, it is easy to construct the tangential velocity at the midpoint of

each panel according to the following formula

each panel according to the following formula

25

AA200b - Applied Aerodynamics II Lecture 3

from which the force and moment coefficients can be computed assuming

that this value of Cp is constant over each panel and by performing the

discrete sum. How close is the cd to zero? You will find out in your next

homework.
